    Im loosing faith in Ricky mainly cause we should of been told to play jungle ball by about rnd 14.Instead we stuck to our boring game plan and got toweled up nearly every week.

    Ricky is more accountable. That's what coaching is about.

    Ive come to the decision that if Stuart would rather be at the Raiders then let him go. If he is committed to Parra long term then let him stay.

    We are not in a position to have a coach that isnt 100% wanting to be here (like Hagan in 2008)

    Probably the best post so far, however I'd still push him if he even hinted that he was asked.

    Three of those didn't play first grade under Kearney and the other (Sio) was much better last year.

    I'd seriously consider Jason Taylor. His passion is there. I remember him elevating Souths from a bottom feeder club into the top 8 for the first time in a long time. It boosted their morale.

    Stuart's a myth of a coach, if he wants to go they should open the door for him. No one else would get away with what his done this year. f**king disgrace.

    Personally I think that is f**ked and represents everything wrong with the current bunch of pea hearted woofters that call themselves rugby league players these days.

    The rate at which coaches are being sacked in the NRL is not healthy. These days it is easier for a bunch of nancy players to front the board and force a coach out because a club would rather replace a coach than 6-8 players. Fans seem to have started to reflect this position.

    Take what is alleged to have happened to Dave Furner. F**king disgraceful.

    Ricky hasn't set the world alight this year but he is dealing with absolutely hopeless f**king nuffies that would deadset struggle to put their f**king pants on without starting to cry like school children.

    i always thought ricky's biggest positive as a coach was that he could motivate

    fmd - couldn't have done worse at that this year if he had tried!!

    Because the players do not care! They know they will get there pay check and play first grade due to either injuries or no one better in reserves. Who's fault is that? SK.

    Agreed.

    Problem is that people want someone to blame. However, the reality is that everyone is accountable - the board, our coach and our players have all been pretty ordinary.

    For us to improve on the field we need improvements from all of these people.

    The coach should make them care and motivate them. That is also part of his job.

    big part of the coach's job is to make them care


    i think our players do care - they are just plain de-moralised ... partly by their own leader (ie coach) putting them down publicly from the get go

    You said before that you manage 150 people at work. When you have managed an absolute deadshit with no idea who hasn't shown any signs of improvement at their job do you blame yourself?

    Be honest.

    Ricky Stuart to Eels: ‘Buy into what I’m doing”
    BY Michael Chammas, Sydney Morning Herald – September 11, 2012
    [​IMG]Ricky Stuart began his Parramatta rescue mission yesterday with a simple message for his new players: ”Buy into what I’m doing.”
    On day one of the Stuart regime, those were the words the former NSW coach was drumming into his players, who’ve given up their post-season holidays to begin training two months early.
    It was the start of a new era – Nathan Hindmarsh and Luke Burt didn’t lob for day one of pre-season for the first time since 1997.
    But at the helm was a man, described by the club as ”the best signing since Gibson”, intent on returning the club to its glory days.

    Stuart used yesterday to get to know the players, elaborating on his expectations and demands as a coach. One Eels insider told the Herald he was ”honest and upfront” on his first official day in charge.
    Stuart didn’t waste any time emphasising what he considers an important part of the Eels’ evolution.
    Parramatta, the worst defensive team in the competition this season, focused on defence in their first session under Stuart, gaining an understanding of the structure the former Cronulla and Sydney Roosters coach wants to adopt.
    The players said there was a sense of excitement at training yesterday, with veteran Reni Maitua and fullback Jarryd Hayne taking to Twitter to express their feelings.
    ”First day back at Training. #3weektrainingblock first run in 6weeks on the #SpaceTredmill. Exciting times !!!!” Hayne said.
    Maitua was more concerned about how his body would hold up after a week of celebrations.
    ”Day 1 of preseason begins. After a week of festivities, let see how the body feels #nopainnogain #noretreatnosurrender,” Maitua said.

    of course everyone is accountable .... blame sits on all of them

    and we'll start solving the dilemma by letting the lame coach walk :thumn

    I've never seen Stuart hold himself accountable for anything . As far as he's concerned it's not he's fault we are bad it's the fault of 12 other blokes .

    True. I was thinking more of those that wanted Sticky gone in favour of Brian Smith

    Ken Kearney, Norm Provan and Terry Fearnley say hello.

    Lets not forget Brian "Preliminary Final" Smith

    [youtube]h64qcUEP91Y[/youtube]

    Go to 0.40. Look at the time on the clock and the score. Then watch. Paul Cariage - a Brian Smith developed player.

    I have seen a huge improvement in Hayne's maturity. I also saw improvement in Sandow playing a more intelligent style than the unpredictable flubber under Kearney.

    Sticky inherited SK'd squad - who didnt replace Hindy of Burt, let alone Poore (underperforming but on Origin coin).

    We need stability. No player is going to sign a 3 year deal knowing they will play under 3 coaches, 4 CEO's and 2 boards. Thats why we had to pay overs for Sandow, because apart from him all we could attract were Chris Walker, Carl Webb and Ben Roberts.

    Immediately that Sticky came on board, we netted Israel Folau. If the NRL didnt f*ck that up, we would have looked a lot better - greater strike power out wide, better defence and a better influence on the young guys desperately needing some guideance in the absence of Hayne. Plus our backs would have looked a hell of a lot better for the likes of Hock and Papali in their deliberations. That aint Sticky's fault.

    The problems in our club is not the fault of one man. Ever since the board started to fracture, our coaching staff and playing roster have been behind the 8 ball. You cannot blame Sticky for that.

    Having said that, if our f*cking board can put the arguments aside and think of the club first, then it's up to Sticky to deliver a decent stab at the finals with our meagre yet commendable recruitment. Sadly, I can see us right back in the later Monie/Cronin years - constant recruitment of nuffies and not a single signature from a decent talent.

    Besides, after today's effort, we are no worse than Canberra.

    Hey Loudstrat do you have any idea how f**king ridiculous that is when you post some video in 98 and say hey that's a Brian Smith coached player ? Like seriously do you know how f**king stupid you sound?

    I'm pretty sure Fearnley coached Parra when Neville Glover dropped that ball to score in the corner and win us our first grand final. Does that make Fearnley a bad coach ? Of course not.

    We were a great club during the Smith years. I could post every f**king video besides a late splurge in 2009 and it would look worse than The Exorcist and then show you the Stuart years which is about to break all time losing records as the extended unmodified never seen before exclusive members only footage.

    Come on mate, you are smarter than that.
